The world is coming to an end. The sky will catch fire, the rivers will rise, and the ground will shake! Where will you be when it all comes crashing down? Instead of roaming the streets creating havoc, eating all of your Twinkies, running for the hills, crying with your cat, or cowering in your basements, why not spend your last forsaken moment with your friends at Know Theatre? No one is really sure the exact moment, method, or duration of our path to judgment day, but one thing is for sure, Know Theatre will tell you what to expect when you are expecting...the end of the world.
On December 20 and 21, 2012 at 9pm, join Know Theatre to celebrate the end of days with a performance so big, so loud, so funny, and so righteous, that it might just bring about the end of days. Our house band, The Rapture Brothers will provide the righteous tunes, our cast of the chosen few will provide the laughs to ease your pain, and don't worry, the bar will be open. Your money's no good after the river of molten metal swings through Cincinnati, so be sure to bring it all with you.
The Apocalypse Show is directed by Know Theatre's Producing Artistic Director Eric Vosmeier, and has been created, scene by scene, and song by song, by your end of the world creative team; Chris Wesselman, Eric Vosmeier, Steve Schofield, Annie Kalahurka, and Harper Lee. The Apocalypse Show incorporates sketch comedy, our live band The Rapture Brothers, predictions, secrets revealed, gratuitous drinking, and answers to all of your apocalypse FAQ's.
What happens if the world doesn't end? On Saturday December 22 from 1-3pm, if all doesn't go according to plan, join us at Know Theatre for The Apocalypse Show Potluck! Bring your favorite post-apocalyptic dish to share and we'll celebrate the Mayan's lack of foresight. Hopefully we won't see you there!
